One of the most coveted roles of the upcoming TV pilot season is now cast.
Adrianne Palicki has landed the lead role of “Wonder Woman” in NBC’s remake on the super sexy superhero.
The 28-year-old actress was a breakout star on NBC’s “Friday Night Lights” and she was one of the bright spots on Fox’s short-lived drama “Lone Star” last year.
The high-profile project comes from creator David E. Kelley (”Ally McBeal,” “The Practice,” “Boston Legal”) and Warner Bros. TV.
The re-imagining of the iconic DC Comics character will find this new “Wonder Woman” aka Diana Prince to be a multi-tasker just like most modern women–she’s described as a vigilante crime fighter; a successful corporate executive; and an (extra) ordinary gal trying to balance all the elements of her complex life.
The original “Wonder Woman” TV series starred Lynda Carter and ran from 1976-79.
